AMEX Delta Skymiles APPROVED!! 6 DAYS AFTER AMEX GREEN APPROVED!

Oh my!! The Credit Gods have smiled upon me today!!

 

I wanted the AMEX Delta Skymiles Reward card but had just been approved for the AMEX Green Card on March 1st. I thought "surely they won't approve me because I just got in with AMEX 6 days ago"----and Holy Smoke AMEX did!!

 

The credit consultant used my previous application, asked me a few questions for verification purposes, read the terms and conditions, and boom---$5,000 credit line!!

 

I almost fell out of my office chair when the credit consultant came back with that starting limit!! I travel extensively and was already enrolled in Delta Skymiles Reward program. AMEX linked my Delta Skymiles Reward card to my exisitng skymiles and my card will arrive in 2-3 days!!

 

I am ecstatic!! I've been approved for 2 AMEXs in one week! 

 

Now off to the garden I go with a smile on my face!!
